Welcome To The Illinois P-20 Council

The Illinois P-20 Council was established by the legislature in 2009 to foster collaboration among state agencies, education institutions, local schools, community groups, employers, taxpayers, and families, and to collectively identify needed reforms to develop a seamless and sustainable statewide system of quality education and support. The "P" in our name represents Preschool and "20" stands for grade 20, education after college.

Our Goal

To increase the proportion of adults in Illinois with
high-quality degrees and credentials to 60% by
the year 2025.
